Operating as usual

[04/30/20]   We're doing something bad to raise money for something good.

Leo Zamudio, Ben Silver, and I are doing a Beer Backyard Marathon 8 hour challenge. On May 2nd, at the top of every hour, we'll chug a beer and run 4 miles, repeating every hour for 8 hours. total of 8 beers and 33 miles. If one of the challengers drops out, they are paying back all the money they raised.

With the #Beijing15 #trackandfield #worldchampionships going on this week, a #fbf to reigning #Olympic gold medalist and world record holder Renaud Lavillenie displaying some mad skill at the #PreClassic seemed appropriate. #HaywardField #France #polevault #Oregon #PrefontaineClassic

Help the Garcia family in this time of need!

This past Tuesday, a third-grade student one of our Running for Help members teaches was in a huge fire in their house that not only caused her and her family bodily harm (the parents are in critical condition), but they lost everything as well. Running for Help is hoping to raise money to help with their needs right now, and any other expenses that they may be going through. As of right now, one of her and her brother's biggest needs is clothing, so much of the money donated will go towards that. Message or post if you have any other questions, or if you would like to help in any other way. Thank you, we really appreciate it.

youcaring.com On February 17th, the Garcia family suffered an accident at their house and lost all of their belongings and are in the hospital. Not only will they require funding to recover all that they have lost, but there are also members of the family in critical condition. Here is a link for the news...

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
